If you’re planning a visit to Holden Beach, North Carolina, you might want to schedule it during a time when there are Holden Beach local events going on. One of the most popular events held every year is Days at the Docks held on Jordan Blvd., under the Holden Beach Bridge. This popular two day event will take place Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, 2014.
This is how the North Carolina locals kick off Spring and the official start of the vacation season. The days are filled with plenty of arts and crafts vendors and lots of food! Come prepared to dance because there will be live music and other entertainment. You just won’t be able to sit still – nor should you! Be sure to take part in the horseshoe tournament and the world famous “Bopple Race.”
The kids will love the children’s area that will be set up both days to include a Home Depot workshop, The Almost Amazing A with his Awesome Balloons, Miss Jenn’s Face Painting, Harvest Fellowship and lots of new games and prizes!
